Hangman Adam Page has thanked Colt Cabana, Dark Order, and The Elite for helping him achieve personal and professional growth.
Ever since his on-screen breakup with the Elite, Hangman Page found his new group of friends in the form of Dark Order. Even though Page never officially joined the faction, he has been closely associated with members Evil Uno, Alex Reynolds and John Silver, along with now former members Stu Grayson and Colt Cabana.
In a recent Instagram post, the former AEW World Champion shed light on how Cabana, Dark Order, and The Elite helped him grow his career:
“After you get famous, you stop growing. You don’t have to.”
After being an even small part of a movement with the Elite and our subsequent falling out I was a afraid of stagnation. I was happy, fulfilled, and getting a good pay-check; but without anyone to push me further.
During Brodie’s illness I was scared to move forward with these guys, but we all still felt it was the right thing to do.
I could never say enough about all of the Dark Order.
John’s jokes effortlessly turn a bad day into a hilarious one. Alex is my dad friend; our sons were born five days apart and it’s been so grounding to have someone on the same ride as me. Uno self-deprecates in a way I can relate to, only wishing he saw in himself what I see in him. Ten for working tirelessly and covering for my sorry ass at the latest possible notice.
Anna for never hesitating to get in on a good dick joke and be one of the boys. Stu for never being complacent with his spot and always wanting for more.
Five for overcoming having such a small penis and gaining the confidence to bet on himself in a way I have never had to. Colt for being a fountain of wisdom and saying to me the most self-affirming words I’ve ever heard.
I owe a lot of my career to Matt, Nick, and Kenny. I owe as much to these guys too. Thank you for helping me continue to grow.”
This post comes at an interesting time, as it has previously been reported how the issues between CM Punk and The Elite stemmed from Page’s comments in May about Punk allegedly trying to get Cabana fired from AEW.
